Lewis County General Hospital & Residential Health Care Facility (LCGH/RHCF) is a 25-bed Critical Access Hospital and 160-bed Nursing Home facility that also offers Hospice and Home Health Care services for residents. The facility also plays a vital role in improving the local community. Not only does LCGH provide critical health care and 24/7 emergency services, the facility continues to contribute vital resources to our communities through jobs, tax revenue, and capital improvements.
With over 650 employees, LCGH is also one of the largest employers in the County. LCGH/RHCF spends millions per year on goods and services necessary to maintain our facilities. These dollars are reinvested in the County through employee and hospital spending which directly impacts the local economy.
The facility also operates four off-site health centers. The centers are staffed by physicians and physician assistants employed by the hospital. These sites, located in Beaver Falls, Copenhagen, Harrisville and Lyons Falls, help to bring the skills of the staff and the modern technology of the facility directly to the local communities.
The hospital recently remodeled and enlarged the Diagnostic Imaging Department. The cornerstone of the new center is the first and only 3D Digital Mammography Unit and 3D Automated Dense Breast Ultrasound in the North Country. We are proud of offering some of the latest technology available in the ongoing fight against breast cancer.
